Determination of chlorine ions of pesticides was performed after dechlorination reaction using a palladium/magnesium system. Chlorine ions were quantified by potentiometry with ion-specific electrode. Rates of dechlorination of 100 microg of DDT as a function of reaction time and percent (wt/wt) of palladium deposited on the magnesium particles were determined. The best reaction conditions to DDT dechlorination were achieved with an acetone/water (1:1) solution and DDT reaction with a 0.27% (wt/wt) palladium/magnesium bimetallic system at room temperature for 10 min. The detection limit was of 0.24 microg/mL. This low cost method showed an efficiency of 92% in determining chlorine ions derived from DDT, it is fast, requiring no specialized laboratory equipment.
